About the Outback:

"Originally known as Back Wall, the rock here is not as unrelentingly steep as most og Q'Emlin Park. ...the routes were rigged to be user-friendly to the beginner leader. Protection bolts are generous and holds tend to be accommodating." The top of the cliff is somewhat shattered and not all routes have clear lower offs, so you should either use a top belay or rappel from the bolts/chains.
Approach: Follow the wagon trail to garden wall. Continue another ~20m. The wall is to hiker's right.
Approach Time: 5 mins
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: none
